“Highlight of the holiday!”

Levante Speedboat Excursions
Ranked #1 of 9 Tours in Tsilivi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We knew before coming to Zakynthos we wanted to do the boat trips, staying in Tsilivi we were tipped that Levante was the best around and they were right!!

We booked in the office in Tsilivi and signed up for both the Shipwreck/Blue Caves trip and the Sea Turtle spotting/Turtle Island/Kerri Caves Trip.

We went to the Shipwreck Beach on the Saturday morning, we arrived before any other tour boats, as advertised, and had a wonder 30-40 mins on the beach, the view if the Shipwreck is breath taking and it's a lovely place to stop and have to just the small few of you before the 1500 others turn up! After this we went to the blue caves, Captain Spiros (legend) can manoeuvre is boat In and out of all the caves, most of the other trips cannot do this, another big plus point! We then stopped for a swim in the crystal clear blue water near the blue caves which they call blue lagoon, take a snorkel and look around, loads of fish! Then the final stop was lunch at the fishing village of St Nicholas, a lovely place to stop and a Fisherman's Salad which was out of this world!

The second trip we went Sea Turtle spotting, at the start if the trip Captain Spiros was very honest and said we may not see one as the weather had made the water slightly dirtier than usual, however we found one and it's an amazing sight, Spiros always tries to find a turtle and will very rarely stop til he does! Then we went to Turtle Island for a quick stop, I recommend having a snorkel around the rocks if you want to see some amazing fish, and some are quite big! Then he takes you inside the Kerri Caves, flying through some amazing arch ways in the cave structure before anchoring up in a beautiful cave where you can swim around and see some amazing things! Then you head back and stop off at the Banana beach for a bite to eat and a drink if you like before heading home.

I cannot stress enough how much value for money these trips are... and this mainly because of Captain Spiros and his crew. Spiros has been doing this for nearly 30 years and his Knowledge is second to none, he is also a very funny guy who will keep you entertained! Brilliant with kids who often get to ride up front and drive the boat (very jealous).

Thanks to everyone who world at Levante Speed Boat Tours, and we hope to see you again one day!

Me and a friend really wanted to see the turtles but didn’t fancy time on a bus collecting other customers and driving with no view. Nor did we want a large boat. Levante speedboat excursion met our needs perfectly and we weren’t disappointed on the day. Yes you spend time travelling from one stop to the next but with a view of the sea or the beautiful coastline which makes it all part of what was a magical afternoon . Seeing a turtle come up for air was amazing and captain spiros ensured everyone saw the turtle whilst demonstrating utmost respect . Only downside was a jellyfish sting in the caves but the team dealt with it efficiently with lots of cream. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Would definitely recommend.

We had an incredible afternoon visiting Turtle Island, some impressive caves and Banana Beach with Captain Spiros and his crew who were great fun, incredibly friendly and very knowledgable. We were fortunate enough to clearly see several turtles and the trip was made extra special when our little boy was allowed to drive the boat with the help of Captain Spiros. This trip is a unique and personal experience from beginning to end and we would go as far to say that it was the highlight of our holiday with the whole family thoroughly enjoying it. Can't recommend Levante Excursions enough.

We found Levantes on TA. We went to the booking office in Tsivili where cute old lady took care of us. We booked the shipwreck trip. At morning we were the first on the beach we had time to swim there to make photos before the big ships arrived and Mr. Spiros let us know details about the history of the wreck. He is very funny and loves to make people smile especially the kids, he let them steer the boat and sit next to him. We swam in blue caves and we drove inside all of them with the boat. We were so exciting about this trip do the same day we run to book the turtles trip :) it was perfect as we expected. We saw the turtle we went the turtle island and the Keri caves to swim. With this crew you will be in right hands they will take care of you even you will get a jellyfish sting or even they have to jump over to board to the see to help you, they will do it :) even they make a good time they still professionals and they still care from start to the end. You will enjoy it as we did. When we will return to Zante we will book again :) Kaptain&theCrew thank you for the great trip and the great experience.
